padres midseason status

what a difference a year makes

Year W L Runs Scored Runs Against Winning %
2009 35 46 310 405 .432
2010 48 33 336 267 .593

look at that runs against total — pitching has been HUGE this year… which has equated to national league-tying best record (atl)

padres leading the majors in the following categories:

  • shutouts (12)
  • era (3.06)
  • strikeouts (639)
  • opponents batting avg (.234)
  • opponents on-base percentage (.302)
  • opponents slugging avg (.353)
  • team whip (1.21)

clearly, the starters and especially the bullpen (“the pen-itentiary“) are killin’ it… adams and gregerson lead the majors in holds (21, 19) and bell leads the majors in saves (23)

offense, however, needs to pick things up

  • 26th overall – batting avg (.246) | adrian (.295)
  • 25th overall – homeruns (58) | adrian (16)
  • 22nd overall – rbi (322) | adrian (51)
  • 24th overall – hits (676) | adrian (86)

so obviously the padres are in the race… and a bat needs to be brought in… but who do you trade for a solid bat?

…i’m okay with mujica getting moved…

oh btw, i love stats…
